Important role


Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi

Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi, President of the American University of Sharjah and of Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park, is an inspiration and a role model for women all over the United Arab Emirates. With her leadership skills she works hard and believes in women empowerment (“Women have the drive to harness new benefits of tech: Sheikha Bodour,” May 25, Gulf Today website).

According to the report, speaking at the second Women in Tech Global Summit, in Paris, Sheikha Bodour said offering leadership opportunities to women and integrating their perspectives in decision- and policy-making would usher in a better technology roadmap for society. The publishing entrepreneur and philanthropist, who’s a committed advocate of workplace equality, is particularly concerned by the underrepresentation of women in the technology sector. The women’s role in developing a highly educated society is so important. I am sure in the leadership of Sheikha Bodour Al Qasimi women will play their vital role in the policy-making and development of the country.
